More spooning

Well I haven't exactly had a landslide of emails from you British spoon owners out there. So I guess either they are that rare or you're not telling me ;

Here's a couple more from Henry

Farrelly (Brookvale, Sydney, NSW): found in the UK.

Probably shaped by Paul Connors or Midget or possibly Paul Shanks, and glassing perhaps by Chris Crozier depending which year it was manufactured (believe Connors and Crozier left Farrelly’s around 1970 to start Croziers).
Apparently only about 100 made.Probably made between 1969 – 1972 (see advert attached). I have a feeling it is late 60’s, 1970.

Henri slab Kneeboard. The slab kneeboard shape came into popularity around '73 as could be used in all conditions as opposed to the just- positive floatation of a true spoon. Chris Henri had a factory in the Curl Cur/Brookvale, Sydney NSW.

Freedom factory around '71 , with a Freedom made spoon ? ,Jersey.
